A royal biographer has claimed that Harry and Meghan's "grandiose" attitude to world issues is evidence of the exiled royals trying to set up "some sort of alternate woke royal family."
Angela Levin, a journalist and royal biographer, is known for criticising the couple heavily and has now branded them "phony."
Her most recent comments come after a YouGov poll revealed that the couple's popularity has dropped since the bombshell Oprah interview in March, and the couple's general wokeness.
Levin said: "I think Harry and Meghan's grandiose, comfy and caring comments about the situation in Afghanistan, the disaster in Haiti and new Covid variants is another example of them trying to set up some sort of alternate woke royal family.
"Their comment that they want to 'alleviate suffering among those we know and those we may never meet – that will prove our humanity,' sounds so similar to their recent comment we must be compassionate 'to those we know and those we don't know' that makes it sound equally phony."
Harry's positive opinion ranking has fallen nine points since April to 34%, whereas Meghan's has dropped three to 26%, states the poll which collected data between August 27 and August 29.
The Sussexes' responses to the Afghanistan crisis and Covid are responsible for the drop according to the survey.
They have urged followers to donate to humanitarian causes such as the World Central Kitchen but haven't divulged how much money they have given.
The so-called 'woke salad' statement also said that the couple were suffering "the many layers of pain".
The Queen remains the most popular royal with an 80% positive opinion rate. Prince William ranks second with 78%.

"Well they've made history for the wrong reasons biggest ever drop in popularity ratings. They're fading away," one said.
A second added: "They absolutely truly deserve it. Their favourability ratings must be in minus until they apologises to the Royals."
Another said to the contrary: "Pointless exercise, as H&M long ago realised the UK isn't their market and, instead, they will be successful with their particular brand elsewhere."
